Wind developers may offer landowners a fixed annual lease payment, a single up-front payment, a share of revenues from a wind project, or some combination of these. Although fixed payments may be lower than a share of revenues, they offer less risk to the landowner. Up-front payments may be attractive too, but if the property is sold within the timeframe of the contract, it could complicate the sale. A new landowner who doesn't receive any income from the wind turbines may want to pay a lower price for the property. Also, up-front payments are often structured so that the developer receives a perpetual lease to the wind resource rights on the property. This can be a disadvantage, as the value of wind power is expected to increase over time. Basing the lease on a share of revenues is likely to be the best option for capturing future increases in the value of wind power.
